Diet for a Poisoned Planet: How to Choose Safe Foods for You and Your Family Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like Silent Spring, Diet for a Poisoned Planet took on an entire industry and went onto become a classic work of environmental writing. Now reissued in a new millennium edition, the work's in-depth look at the contaminants in individual food items is updated with the latest Total Diet Study findings. A motivating book, Diet for a Poisoned Planet changes people viscerally. Steinman tells his own story of fishing in the Santa Monica Bay as a child and how he went on to testify before Congress as an expert witness on the contamination of his own body by the fish he ate. The book is written by a true expert who has been a member of a National Academy of Sciences committee to advise Congress on seafood safety legislation.

Synopsis:

Here is a thoroughly researched guide to the foods that are safest and the ones that are most dangerous in each of the major food groups.

"From the Trade Paperback edition.
